Facing SSL problems? Use our efficiently developed tools and say goodbye to them, once and for all!

You just bought and installed an SSL certificate. But did you do it correctly? Yes, you can test it with your browser, but bear in mind that each one of them validates the path differently. Firefox installs immediate certificates, but not Internet Explorer. Similarly, the former validates the full path, and the latter validates the shortest. So every browser does it differently, which is why you should check your certificate through a proper SSL tool.

swissns GmbH offers tools for both checking and validating SSL and CSR certificates. Plus, you can also check your certificate’s status.

SSL checker

How can you diagnose problems with your SSL certificate installation? Call onto our SSL checker for help, and the tool would ensure that your certificate is installed correctly, properly validated, can be trusted, and doesn’t throw out any errors for any of your visitors, regardless of the browser they use.

Enter your server’s host name in the text box, and there you go. Please note that your hostname should be public in order for you to use the tool.


CSR Decoder

Before purchasing an SSL certificate, you should generate a Certificate Signing Request, abbreviated as CSR, which contains information to identify your organization, domain name and the public key. However, all the information on the file is encoded, so it is hard to verify details that it contains. And so, you require the CSR decoder.

The CSR Decoder decodes your CSR in order to verify that it has correct information. Doing this is a must because issuing authorities use the information present on your CSR to create an SSL certificate for you.

Paste the CSR in the text box below, and let our tool decode the file.

Note: Make sure you copy the complete CRS file. It begins with BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST and ends with END CERTIFICATE REQUEST.


Certificate Decoder

Most of the authorities issue SSL certificates in the PEM format, identified by extensions like .perm, .cer, and .key. A PEM file is a Base64 encoded ASCII file which holds relevant information such as server certificate, intermediate certificate and private key. Most of the times, the certificate and private key are in a separate file, but they can be bundled together along with other certificates in a single file.

So, how do know you what information is contained in the PM that you obtained? Use our Certificate Decoder tool to find out. Copy and paste the information in the file in the text below, and that is it.


CSR Generation

Okay, so you need a CSR, but how do you get one? Our CSR Generator can do the job for you. The process also generates a private key, which is later required when installing the SSL certificate. Be sure to keep this key in a secure place.
